Daily Gospel Reading for August 9, 2021 – Monday in the Nineteenth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 9th of August, 2021 is Monday in the Nineteenth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: DT 10:12-22

The first reading from the Book of Deuteronomy.

Now, Israel, what does Yahweh your God require of you, but to fear Yahweh your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, and to serve Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul, to keep Yahweh’s commandments and statutes, which I command you today for your good?

Behold, to Yahweh your God belongs heaven, the heaven of heavens, and the earth, with all that is therein.

Only Yahweh had a delight in your fathers to love them, and he chose their offspring after them, even you above all peoples, as it is today.

Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked.

For Yahweh your God, he is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, the mighty, and the awesome, who doesn’t respect persons or take bribes.

He executes justice for the fatherless and widow and loves the foreigner in giving him food and clothing.

Therefore love the foreigner, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.

You shall fear Yahweh your God. You shall serve him. You shall cling to him, and you shall swear by his name.

He is your praise, and he is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen.

Your fathers went down into Egypt with seventy persons; and now Yahweh your God has made you as the stars of the sky for multitude.

Gospel of the Day: MT 17:22-27

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

While they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men, and they will kill him, and the third day he will be raised up.” They were exceedingly sorry.

When they had come to Capernaum, those who collected the didrachma coins came to Peter, and said, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the didrachma?”

He said, “Yes.” When he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth receive toll or tribute? From their children, or from strangers?”

Peter said to him, “From strangers.” Jesus said to him, “Therefore the children are exempt.

But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, cast a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. When you have opened its mouth, you will find a stater coin. Take that, and give it to them for me and you.”

Other Celebration

An optional celebration on this day is the Memorial of Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Virgin and Martyr.
